Laziness

The enemy, always waiting, always watching,

creeping up with sneak attacks.

Lulling to a state of relaxation,

turning to procrasination,

becoming a high schooler's worst nightmare,

as the assignments pile up,

and there's no end,

day by day,

there's more and more,

no end to it all,

as laziness continues to attack.

 

Leading to punishments, avoidable ones,

but inevitable ones.

It brings discomfort,

a feeling of needing to do something,

resulting in lack of relaxation,

or too much.

 

Consuming time, as it always does,

while aging before you know it,

older, but wiser?

 

365 days a year, 24/7
it comes,
and it will get you, sooner or later.

Thank you, I'm a frequent victim of this... Predicament. Though I try not to be, and it succeeds some of the time, I can't help but fall back into that horrid habit. It's getting much better now, and has become a great inspiration. Thank you for the wonderful feedback.

Wow! This is so relatable and yet so true! I loved how you added in every single detail, the rhythm fit perfectly to create something just absolutely extraordinary. I love how you ended this wonderful poem with such a powerful statement. All over, wonderful job! :)
